KARACHI: Pakistan’s Kamran Akmal has become the first wicketkeeper in T20 cricket to record 100 stumpings.
After the former Pakistan Team’s wicketkeeper achieved the feat, PCB on a social media post said, “The first wicketkeeper to record 100 stumpings in T20 cricket, congratulations Kamran Akmal on a wonderful achievement.”
Akmal has achieved the feat after he stumped Shan Masood in the ongoing National T20 Cup in Rawalpindi. The wicket-taking delivery was bowled by left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar.
Akmal is currently playing for Central Punjab in the National T20 cup. Apart from representing Pakistan internationally, he has also played for the Pakistan Super League team Peshawar Zalmi.
